Reactions have ranged from entertained to outraged after parents and fellow students alike discovered a racy photo on page 14 of the Lake Norman High School’s yearbook.
In the photo, a girl who is standing in the front row has her graduation gown hiked up to her waist and is naked from the waist down, exposing her nether regions to all.
The school, who refuses to release the name of the girl they say was 18-years-old, says that the photo was probably just an accident and offered that it also may have been an illusion.
At the main office, the district’s public information officer, Dawn Creason, said Wednesday afternoon, “Really looking at that image, we’re not sure that’s what it is at all. We think it was the way she was sitting and the angle of her gown. We’re not convinced at all that you’re seeing what you think you are.”
Creason says that the girl and her family have been contacted by the school and letters have been sent home to the parents of the rest of the students about the photo.
The North Carolina school’s yearbook staff is overseen by a faculty member, who was shocked when she found out the image had been printed and sold in each $100 yearbook to the student body.
According to Creason, people who purchased a yearbook will have the option of either getting refund or sending it back and getting an edited version that will have another image pasted over the saucy photo.
One parent told WSOCTV that the district’s explanation that the photo was an illusion created by the tops of the girl’s thighs is laughable.
A statement released by the district said:
“I can assure the parents of Iredell-Statesville Schools that I take all complaints very seriously. Our administration began investigating as soon as they were made aware of this complaint. Since the investigation is not complete at this point, I hesitate to rush to judgment, but let me be clear, there is accountability in I-SS and if action is required it will be taken.”
The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office plans to let the district investigate before they perform an investigation of their own. The police did not say what, if any, charges the girl could face, and the district did not indicate what punishment they could carry out on the girl since she has graduated.
